The well-being of our candidates, employees and customers is always our priority. As such, we are committed to adjusting how we recruit talent to protect our communities from the direct and indirect impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19). We continue to hire for all open positions by conducting interviews and onboarding virtually. This change allows us to maintain our fair and inclusive hiring practices while reducing health risks. We appreciate your flexibility and look forward to meeting you. NOTE: As part of Freddie Mac’s return to the office pilot, all employees, contingent workers and visitors must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to be on-site unless they have an approved accommodation.
Our goal is for every person at Freddie Mac to feel energized in life, and that means feeling good about what you do and the environment you’re in—in the office and at home. With comprehensive benefits including student loan repayment, parental leave and home benefit program, we aim to support employees’ total well-being.
